"I cut this recipe in half and placed it in a 7 inch skillet. I used whole wheat pastry flour & skim milk. I also substituted the sugar for maple syrup. It has the perfect amount of sweet and salty."

"This is a quick, easy recipe we make again and again at our house. I love that you can use one dish to make it."

"This was absolutely delicious. My husband ate it w/o syrup and enjoyed it as much as my kids who aite it with (believe it or not) a small amount of syrup. It would be even easier if the sausage was cooked the night before which is what I will do the next time."

"This recipe was super good. I was a little doubtful about the apples too, but they make the perfect complement to the cheese and sausage, and the flavors blend very well. I baked it for 23 minutes and had no problems with it being done. I'm wondering if some people might have baked it in frying pan that was smaller than 10 inches and so it was thicker? I baked it in a 9.5" saute pan."
